Judge: DOROTHY BOWEN

Tracklayers: Maggie Richardson, Richard Cornwell, John Reynolds
Many thanks to Surrey Dog Training Society for the invitation to judge WD at this trial. Dave Clark was their first choice but was unable to judge through ill health. I hope you are feeling better now Dave. Thanks to Stan Ford, the trials manager, who coped very well even though he had to replace two of the three judges. Thanks also to Jennifer who was my steward and great company. Cathy Dench, Caroline Ashford and Beryl Kimberley did the catering which was excellent. Chris Brooks ran the base in her usual efficient way. All the tracks were laid by Maggie, Richard and John all very experienced tracklayers. Thank you all.
There were fourteen entries but only nine ran and we finished with two qualifiers. Seven dogs qualified the nosework but five of them failed the C & A. The two days were very cold and windy.

Steward: Sally Baker
I would like to thank Surrey for the invitation to judge the TD nosework. Thank you to the trials manager Stan Ford and Chris Brookes at base who were both so supportive. A very special thanks to Sally Baker who was an excellent steward and cheerfully bore two days in icy winds. Also thanks for the catering by Kathie, Caroline and Beryl. The tracklayers did an excellent job. Tracking was on short grass and we saw some first class tracks. Square articles were; a metal spoon, a cartridge, a piece of carpet and a piece of scourer.
